Tom Coates On Web Of Data Sources

Tom Coates shares his perspective about future of web apps.

As he sees it,a web of data sources, services for exploring and manipulating data, and ways that users can connect them together , could be the future model for web apps. Within this framework he explains :
- Every new service can build on top of every other existing service - the web becomes a true platform
- Every service and piece of data that’s added to the web makes every other service potentially more powerful

Consequences of such an approach include :
- Massive creative possibilities
- Accelerating innovation
- Increasingly competitive services
- Increasingly componentised services
- Increasingly specialised services

In particular look at his ideas on parallel data representation.
Also some of the comments posted therein actually bring in interesting points for discussion : mashed up web apps are cool, but there is virtually zero discussion about infrastructure, latency and performance of web applications assembled from pieces all over the Web. The latency with web apps are real issues that could slow performance. I am not a great fan of Web 2.0 applications, but increasingly I see that this is slowly emerging as an important space( that is if you cut all the hype) where lot of creative energy is getting channelised and the potential for growth here is indeed high and as such these developments need to be watched more closely.
